The real story happened in 1973

The story of Linda Ann O’Keefe inspired the creation of Susie Salmon. She was an 11-year-old girl who on July 6, 1973 was the victim of a serial femicide who was arrested 45 years after this tragic event.

As the film narrates, Linda was a fan of riding a bicycle and many times that was her means of transportation to school. The day of her death she was in summer class, but she walked to school.

She was wearing a blue embroidered dress that her mother made for her. This part is also portrayed in the film, as Susie puts on a hat knitted by her mother, and to which a lot of prominence is given.

When classes ended, the minor was seen talking to a stranger in a van, very close to the intersection of Marguerite Drive and Inlet Drive, in Newport. She was walking home because her mom told her that he couldn’t pick her up because she had a lot of work.

This was the last call he had with his daughter, because the next day, she was found dead in a ditch in the Back Bay area. On her corpse there was a DNA sample, but due to the lack of technology, it could not be processed.

His killer was arrested 45 years later, on February 19, 2019. The subject stopped working at a construction company after committing the crime.

This case shocked the entire community, as many data were revealed that remained unsolved when he abused Linda. In the same year of her murder, at least two women from the area saw the little girl approaching the truck and one more of hers, she heard her scream when she was attacked, but none alerted the police.
